The Continuing Saga: 1971 Topps

#511 Chris Short

Chris Short had some pretty great seasons, including a 20-10 record in 1966, but for card collectors it is this 1971 card that he is most remembered. Although it is a technically a Chris Short card it is often seen as an important "extra" card for collectors of the All-Time Hit King. That's Pete Rose there standing off third base waiting to see what happens next.

Nice! A final look at Connie Mack Stadium in the background (which closed in 1970).

I suppose that makes the card Rose's first card as a Phil.
